CAMBRIDGE, U.K., April 19, 2007 -- Camlab Ltd, the laboratory supplies company based at Over, Cambridge, today received a Royal visitor HRH the Duke of Kent. The visit was arranged by UKTI (UK Trade & Investment), the UK Government organization formed to promote innovation and export growth by UK companies, as part of a tour of companies in the Cambridge area.

The Duke toured the Camlab facility and saw the modernization that has transformed the company's warehousing, logistics and customer support activities, as well as developments in internet-based business.

In addition to distributing its own and many other leading brands in the science industries, Camlab has its own manufacturing business for laboratory plastics that prides itself on innovative designs. Among the new products seen by the royal visitor was a range of unique "tamper proof" sample vessels used in testing for drugs of abuse in sport. These incorporate security indicator rings that instantly reveal if the bottle has been tampered with or opened prior to or after sampling. The first production batch has been shipped to the HFL Ltd's Horserace Forensic Laboratory in Newmarket.

Managing Director Ben Sunderland said "This visit has come at a very auspicious time, and acknowledges the innovations and export growth achieved by Camlab under our new management team. In addition to expanding our catalogues and distribution we are currently integrating into Camlab the business of our newly acquired sister company, Patterson Scientific. Patterson Scientific is internationally known as an exporter and consolidator to the EMEA regions and is one of the few approved European suppliers to the World Health Organization."

Camlab ( www.camlab.co.uk)is one of the UK's leading scientific suppliers, with 50 years' experience in the laboratory and Industrial market place. Already UK market leader in Water Testing, the company is ideally positioned for catalogue and geographical expansion, organically and by acquisition.
